Was there any good Fashion in 1971?

Can't prove it by these examples.

Be a super peasant? Really? Maybe it's because I was there, but there isn't much to inspire fond memories here. Some of the prints were cool (note the green dress with the graphic lines), but the flip side was a LOT of bad knits and "man-made" fabrics. Also it looks like the expectations of a sewers skills had lowered. Those gals who could rock a shirtwaist dress a few years back now were making some pretty basic stuff. These kids clothes are especially plain and boring. Or maybe I'm becoming a grouch.


  1. OMG! Did we really mix all those prints TOGETHER? All at once?!?!? ............... I must have blocked that out. Oh the horror!

  2. Maybe YOU did...I'm sure I was always tastefully dressed. In my hot pants.

  3. What is the deal with the long sleeves and shorts combo? If it's cold enough for long sleeves, should one be wearing pants? And while we are at it, let's throw in some knee high socks too. Yikes! I do not remember dressing like that.
